Our Rescued Horses Share "Peace" all across the Nation
"Peace" from the Horses of DoubleHP

Each year for the past several years, Jet and Princey's "Peace" card is a bestseller in our Zazzle store. This year was a record-breaker. Nearly 500 of them sold. I don't know if you could still order them, get them, and send them out in time for Xmas this year. But Zazzle will send them out individually for you if you want to join in. Otherwise, really, we use these cards for everything year-round. What's wrong with a little "Peace"! You know?
It never surprises us that our rescue horses send "Peace" to so many people throughout the nation and also in other countries. Special thanks to the people from New Mexico who called and talked to me about our horses, AND ordered lots of the cards. And also the people from Kentucky who set a new record on amount ordered. Thanks everyone. Thanks Jet and Prince. "Peace

Unbridled Beauties of DoubleHP 2015 Calendars are ready for you to order!

Today, our 2015 calendars are 50% off through our Zazzle store.

Use that link above the photo to go to your Zazzle store. Make sure you use the promo code listed to get 50% off the calendars. When you go to our store, you will be able to see all of the months/pages/photos. When you zoom in on them you may see some copyright watermarks. Don't worry, those won't really be on your calendars. There are 3 different sizes. one is small enough to fit in your purse. I think those pages are 5X7 or close to that. The huge ones are huge! Pages/photos are 11X14. At half price, they cost $10-$15. Kind of spendy I know, but they are beautiful. And all the money we make in our Zazzle store helps our sanctuary horses. Zazzle will send our store items for you anywhere you want them to go. Enjoy!
